''Rules of the Game': an introduction to task-based performance and art' – Online Course at ECC Performance Art
                                                                                                         
With Katja Hilevaara

The French conceptual artist Sophie Calle, whose projects are often led by her 'rules of the game' (a set of predetermined instructions), suggests that abiding by rules is 'restful [and] a way of not to have to think – just be trapped in a game and follow it.' Rule structures, directives and instructions restrain the artist's choice and potentially bring something unforeseen and unpredictable to the creative process. The focus of this course is the critical and practical consideration of these creative constraints as we examine the practice of using task-led activities as a means to conceive and compose performance. Weekly discussions and practical experiments are informed by selected critical reading and examples of case study artists (e.g. Calle's 'Rules of the Game', Cage's 'Chance procedures' and Goat Island's 'Directives'). Each participant will be guided to make weekly performance responses to the material in their own time, which will be discussed with the group. Participants will gain a critically and creatively informed understanding of the practical philosophies that underpin task-based performance art.

Course dates: April 6-27, 2021
Tuesdays, 6-8pm CET.
Fee: EUR 175
